B Em This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry. Instrumental |Gdim|Am|B7|Em| 2. Strophe Em Bm I go checking out the reports - digging up the dirt. A You get to meet in all sorts - in this line of work. G F Treachery and treason - there's always an excuse for it. B7 Em And when I find the reason - I still can't get used to it. Instrumental |Gdim|Am|B7|Em D| 3. Strophe G D And what have you got at the end of the day? Am Em D What have you got - to take away? G D A bottle of whisky - and a new set of lies. C B Blinds on the windows and a pain behind the eyes. Instrumental |n.c.|n.c.|Em|Bm|/|A|G|F|B7|Em|Edim|Am|B7|Em| 4. Strophe Gdim Am6 Scarred for life - no compensation, B B7 Private investigations.
